Thanks for the response. It happens every time. I have disabled
SELinux, still the situation didn't improve.
Is there a way I could analyse why rdiff thinks the files are different
(like the security context)?

I am having some trouble using rdiff-backup since I've migrated the
scripts to a new CentOS 6.2 Server.
The backup scripts mounts several external remote server drives as CIFs:
mount -t cifs //$SERVER/$share -o
and does a backup on an external USB HDD:
rdiff-backup --print-statistics /mnt/$SERVER/$share
(I know, instead of mounting would be better to use the SSH copy
rdiff-backup, but that's how the scripts are and I don't want to
packages to the other servers.)
The problem is that rdiff-backup detects many files as changed
haven't changed at all.
Was this a one-time occurrence, or do you see that happening every
make a backup? I had that happen once, just once, after I did a full
SELinux relabeling on my system. Perhaps your new server is assigning a
slightly different security context to CIFS mounts. This is, of course,
irrelevant if you are running with SELINUX=disabled.
